Bad Insulation Steals Money from You
Get rid of the thief and put money back into your pocket
As the cold weather moves in we tend to bundle up to stay warm, so why should your home be any different? The insulation for your home is the most important contribution to keeping your comfort at a high level and ensuring you’re running an energy-efficient home.
A home with poor insulation is a major drain on your pocket, resulting in having to purchase a more expensive system to provide you with the same comfort. A well-insulated home, particularly one that is insulated with fiber glass, rock wool, or blown-in insulation, is one of the most cost-effective ways of saving energy and reducing heating and cooling bills. Insulation does this by resisting the flow of heat both into and out of the home. Heat is a form of energy flowing outward in the winter and the inward in summer. So in the summertime especially, you could be spending a lot more than is necessary because of bad insulation.
It Creates a Sound Barrier
Insulating your home also “quiets” the home by reducing sound transmission. Today’s homeowners are focused on healthier and greener living by asking for noise control solutions to maximize the enjoyment of their living environment. Neighbors don’t seem to particularly like loud noises flowing out of their surrounding neighbors’ homes. With proper insulation you never need to worry if the movie you are watching or the tune you are listening to is disrupting your neighbor’s leisure time.
Blown-In Insulation is the Best of the Best
Professional AC & Heating uses pro-pink blown-in insulation for a tighter fit and the ability to compact into those hard to reach spots that other methods of insulation, like blown-in cellulose, won’t reach. That dramatic reduction in the amount of air flow results in a very high temperature retention, making it the best choice when looking for an energy efficient alternative to other forms of blown-in insulation.
The vapor-resistant membrane (vapor retarder) attached to insulation decreases the moisture vapor condensing to water inside the structure of a home. It also reduces moisture movement through your walls, floors, and ceilings. Sometimes a vapor retarder is installed separately from the insulation. If enough water is present, wood rot and decay can cause significant damage. Prevent this damage by using blown-in insulation for quick and easy energy savings.
In short, is proper insulation important? Very. It can be the difference in your home’s temperature and the amount of money in your wallet.
